Now, thats how you make a comeback.
Five hours later, I am still as mesmerized by Sridevi's excellent portrayal of Shashi, as I was in the theater. Gauri Shinde’s directorial debut English Vinglish, is a story of the protagonist Shashi Godbole, a sari-clad house wife who also runs a small business of catering home-made laddoos. She is often ridiculed by her family (husband and daughter) for her poor English. On her trip to New York for her niece's wedding, she enrolls herself in English Language classes which helps are build her confidence and self-worth. One of my favorite sequence from the film is when Shashi navigates her way from her sister's residence in New Jersey to her class in Manhattan, by communicating with people in broken english and hand gestures. You cannot help but share her triumph when she makes it to the doorstep her class. The film is filled with many such simple are heart-touching scenes. In fact the simplicity of the story telling is one of the USP's of the movie. The supporting cast of the film delivers too. Two characters that stood out were of Shashi's husband played by Adil Hussain and her adorning French classmate played by Mehdi Nebbou. Without giving away any more of the story, all I can say is that the film marks the comeback of Sridevi after a 15 year sabbatical and it is absolutely worth making the trip to the cinemas for. TRUST ME! :)
